, they forget the fact that guess what, guy, president obama and joe biden, you guys have been in charge for the past four years. so all of your whining and all of your complaining, you can just look right in the mirror and figure out who's to blame because they're the ones that have been in charge. so, yes, the middle class have been buried. the other piece, the first part of that sound bite from joe bide on the fact that, yes, they want to raise taxes, they do. and they've already done it. whether it be obama care, it isn't working. they're going to have to account for it for the next 34 days. thank god we've got three more debates to go. >> those are two devastating quotes. reince priebus, let me get you to listen to president obama, who got whooped so badly in the debate. now he's back with his negativity and coming personally to mitt romney. take a listen, please. >> i met this very spirited fellow who claimed to be mitt romney. but i know it couldn't have been mitt romney. whoever it was that was on stage last night doesn't want to be held accountable for what the real mitt romney'

debate. those are the topics we are going to tackle. and this evening. listen to vice president joe biden on the trail. it is the gift that keeps on giving. >> how they can justify. raising taxes in the middle class. it has been buried in the last four years. how in the lord's name. >> that is nodt a froidian slip. plus three stories that happen to break before the election. a leftist new york attorneyy general looking to bash banks and that is as phony as a $3 bill. also a judge strikes down pennsylvania's voter id law and the obama administration is telling companies it is okay to disregard the law when it comes to handing out pink slips in advance to big budget cuts. all three happening before the election. mitt romney has finally put meat on the bones of his tax reform idea. he floated the idea of a $17,000 cap on tax reform reduction. >> you could say everyone is going to get up to a $17,000 deduction. you can fill that bucket if you will and higher income people might have a lower number. >> this is brand new stuff. we have howard dean former vermont governor and candidate. and let'

have to sell the thing. second point talk about middle class take home pay going up. joe biden was up. the middle class income has been buried. and third here is the tricky point. i don't want to see the tax deductions taken away from the middle class. i want it removed for the upper income people because they are going for 35 to 28%. they should lose the bulk. i wouldn't go after the middle class tax deductions. he said 17% yesterday. he whispered it to a local denver affiliate. i don't know what was up with that. i wouldn't go there. i say $140,000 a year. >> cuddly. cuddles, we got to go. >> 25% to 20%. >> larry, i'm sorry. you got another hour 7:00. we'll be sure to tune in to see part two of your analysis. >> thanks for having me on your show. >> always good to see you. we have your first move tomorrow when we come back. when you take a closer look... ...at the best schools in the world... ...you see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's d

on it. jared bernstein, former advisor to vice president joe biden is with us. mr. bernstein, always nice to see you. >> thank you. >> let's talk first about the most recent story we talked about, and that is the idea that the administration is effectively giving a pass on a law to companies that might otherwise be required to give 60 days of notice that layoffs were impending. senator mccain calls it a blatant violation of the law. do you agree? >> no, i disagree. by the way, i'm not going to say there is not some politics in here. of course, there is. but i thought eamon javers gave a very good and complete explanation of what's going on here, and certainly senator mccain amped up the politics. facts are, that absent a certainty that layoffs are coming, there is no requirement to send out warn act notices. and by the way -- most people -- and i would argue the markets -- believe that the fiscal cliff issues will be resolved. now, that's not a sure thing. but i would argue that that is the way of most people's perspective on this. >> but it's not merely a waiver on the idea of notic

-- >> the ones buried in the last four years? >> i think joe biden really does connect with average voters in a way most politicians don't. and i think it will be tough. >> tony, you and the steelers, man. anything happens to them, and i got to hear from you. >> i have not had a chance on air to congratulate you with the reds. amazing season. >> thank you. they're 5:1 odds. i think the nationalses are slightly above that. but i checked the game is saturday 8:38. i'm so excited because last time i got to the playoffs, remember what happened? they got no hit. i'm like watching it, waiting for a hit. i waited and waited and there never was one. anyway, gentlemen -- go ahead. >> what's that, football? >> listen to you. >> i know you'll have chuck todd on later today, but on this question, if you look at like some of the expectations from the wall street journal poll, on the feelings about the economy and the jobs numbers, what we're seeing in that poll, and i'd love to get chuck's thoughts on this, is a break down in the way republicans and democrats think about the economy. where you see it a

quite well against joe biden. you could have the situation where they wrap up two debate victories before he gets back on the field. so whether the poll numbers move or not, we'll wait to see, buttal all the other elements you want to see. having the narrative go your way and the grasset reus and your troops be energized. this couldn't have come at a better moment for mitt romney. >> there's been some discussion. the democrats trying to push, the twitter hash tag #testymitt the way he moved around jim lehler. once you take a punch right in the jaurks it takes them some time to get their legs. i expect barack obama to come back in two weeks and be far more effective. but the spin from the democrats, i've got to admit, has been pretty weak. >> if you are in charge of prep for them over the next two weeks, how would you alter strategy, if at all? >> well, the for matt is an interesting one that should play to barack obama's strength. it's a town hall format. you'll see a far more aggressive president and he'll try to put him on defense. the question, really, is it's got to be on issue
